We introduced our limited edition Hammerhead Shark Bracelets in partnership with One Ocean Diving, Research & Conservation to raise awareness about the threats facing these apex predators. For every Hammerhead Shark Bracelet sold this month, we’ll pull one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines and donate $1 to our partner of the month.


The light and dark grey cords are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and the dual threats of plastic pollution and overfishing that are causing hammerheads to disappear from our oceans. 


The limited edition hammerhead shark charm symbolizes the donation we’ve made to our partner of the month, which will help fund crucial marine entanglement surveys, cleanups, and the rescue of entangled wildlife. 


As always, the “4O” charm represents the pound of trash you removed from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines, and symbolizes your commitment to our mission to end the ocean plastic crisis.

PRODUCT STORY

Healthy oceans have sharks

Hammerhead shark, Bimini, Bahamas

Scalloped hammerhead entangled in ghost net, Wolf Island, Galapagos

Sharks are beautiful animals, and if you’re lucky enough to see lots of them, that means that you’re in a healthy ocean. You should be afraid if you are in the ocean and don’t see sharks.

There’s no mistaking the distinctive silhouette of a hammerhead shark. Named for the unusual shape of their heads, hammerheads are apex predators usually found in the coastal waters of warmer seas. There are at least 9 species of hammerhead living in our oceans today, the largest of which is the great hammerhead, which can reach lengths of up to 18 feet and weigh over 1,000 pounds. 

Hammerheads’ iconic head shape makes them especially vulnerable to accidental entanglement in fishing nets. They’re also routinely hunted for their meat and fins. Like people, hammerhead sharks live a long time, mature slowly, and have few offspring, which makes them particularly vulnerable to the effects of overfishing.

The combined threats of overfishing and entanglement have caused some populations, like Australia’s scalloped hammerheads, to decline by as much as 80 percent. Right now, 6 of 9 hammerhead species are threatened with extinction. The great hammerhead and scalloped hammerhead species are globally endangered, with some populations categorized as critically endangered. Other species are categorized as vulnerable or threatened but could become endangered if we don’t do more to protect them

Hand assembled by an artisan in Bali, Indonesia

Purchasing a 4ocean bracelet does more than clean the ocean. It also creates sustainable, living-wage jobs.

As soon as our beads, cords, and charms reach our main facility in Denpasar, Bali, a crew loads up our van and motorbikes to distribute these components to artisans in remote villages scattered across the island.

Women comprise 80 percent of this workforce. In Bali, women tend to assume the role of primary caretakers for their families, which means their job opportunities are limited. Because they’re able to hand assemble our bracelets in their homes and village centers, more women are able to join the workforce while continuing to care for their families.
